Multiple layers were attached to the gold surface of surface plasmon resonance (SPR) sensor to maximize the antibody loading and the specific signal of an antigen, while minimizing non-specific signal from full serum proteins. A three-fold improvement of the specific signal from myoglobin and a three-fold decrease of non-specific signal from serum were observed using the N-hydroxysuccinimide ester of 16-mercaptohexadecanoic acid (NHS-MHA) compared to the currently commercially available carboxymethylated dextran. Self-assembled monolayers were attached to the gold surface. 2-mercaptoacetic acid, 3-mercaptopropionic acid, 4,4'-dithiodibutyric acid, 11- mercaptoundecanoic acid, and 16-mercaptohexadecanoic acid were investigated. The covalent attachment of the layers was monitored using SPR and GATR-FTIR. Antibodies to human myoglobin were covalently attached to the sensor using EDC / NHS chemistry and detection of 25 ng/mL myoglobin solution was monitored for the specific signal. Exposing the sensors with the layers to full bovine serum, protein concentration of 72 mg/mL, monitored non-specific signal. NHS-MHA was used to quantify proteins cell culture media with limits of detection below 1 ng/mL.
